So...once the Hobbit hoopla is over Mr. Armitage is going to be cooling his heels again and he won't be alone. Californication has been cancelled which means that David Duchovny is going to be right there with him. Deep sigh there from all of us who appreciated Hank Moody in any way up to and including watching him get his freak on.
I was thinking about this today out loud on Twitter and I got some encouragement from the usual cast of loons so keep this in mind. Boyfriend said he wanted to work on independent films and it doesn't get much more independent than John Waters. You know, Crybaby...Hairspray...Pink Flamingoes. The guy who once appeared on Letterman and said he had a Fashion Police badge and wasn't afraid to use it.
Waters himself is always elegantly turned out, from his pencil thin moustache to his wingtips. I once sat in the Mecca on Queen Anne in Seattle waiting for my boss and trying to figure out where I knew the nattily dressed man at the counter from when he turned and I saw his profile. The Seattle International Film Festival was in full swing at that moment. I resisted the urge to throw myself at his shinily shod feet and worship at the altar of his goofiness.
Anyway, here's the thing. The actor that I most associate with John Waters is the divine Divine. John Travolta didn't come close to filling his bra cups in the remake of Hairspray. So, Mr. Waters, if you happen to be in the market for someone who can wear padding and a wig and actually, you know, act you're in luck because I have a two-for-one for you.
Duchovny actually has the experience here from his time as DEA Agent Dennis/Denise Bryson on Twin Peaks. While Richard Armitage has talked about being in drag he's also talked about being a giant dancing banana and I haven't seen photographic proof of that, either, so we'll just have to take his word for it. Think of it, though: all that masculine beauty stuffed into a push-up bra. Doesn't that twitterpate you? That one could be just me but given the conversation today I somehow doubt it.
Anyway. Richard Armitage and David Duchovny in drag. Didn't I say I wasn't going to think about this? Okay, so I lied again.
